If the Lord does not build a house,
then those who build it work in vain.
If the Lord does not guard a city,
then the watchman stands guard in vain.
Psalms 127:1 NET
Cutting corners rarely works! It might seem to work, but problems arise sooner or later.
Bad construction, inferrior parts, employees that rush through the work, ultimately not caring about the finished product produces mediocrity and sometimes dangerous situations.
We often do this in our life when we move forward without the Lord! We see something we want, we go after it, all without seeking the Lord.
Instead, seek the Lord! Invite Him into your life. Ask Him what He desires for you.
Doing things His way is always best. Remember, He knows that the best place for you is right in the middle of this will!
Do life with Him, every step of the way, every decision you need to make, every minute.
Why wouldn’t you want the God of all creation to be part of your life when He wants to be?
Father, thank You for knowing me and wanting to be part of my life. I’m knowing without You. Help me to always seek You first, before all things.
